I first heard about Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover from a competition cook.
To say I was skeptical is an understatement. A spot remover that will remove the grease stains on almost all my shirts is something I considered to be as elusive as unicorns and perpetual motion machines. So I bought a 2 ounce bottle and tried it on one of my t-shirts.
The instructions say that all you need is just a drop. Sure. I used three drops. Well, my shirt came out so clean I could not find where the stain had been originally. So I tried it on a dress shirt, but fearful it would ruin it, I used only one drop. Again, the grease was gone. Just one drop! So I hauled out all my saucy and greasy shirts, 11 in all, put Grandma to work, tossed them all into one tub, and before long, I had a new wardrobe. Utterly amazing stuff. And just for the record, I have been doing my own laundry since I went away to college, even through 40 years of marriage. That may be a contributing factor to our longevity.
Even my wife is impressed with Grandma. She has used this stuff on some of her finery, including her Mom’s table cloth with ancient spaghetti stains, stains that Oxi-Clean, her go to remover, couldn’t handle.
The label says it is good for “oil, grease, paint, makeup, grass, inks, blood, baby formula, tar, spaghetti sauce, coffee, rust, beadine, turmeric, fabric bleed, and pet stains.” The only caveat on the label is to “check garment for colorfastness.”
